MOULTRIE -- Moultrie Technical College's SkillsUSA student organization has announced the beginning of its annual M. Shane Willis Toy Drive, in memory of a late MTC student. The drive will continue through Dec. 9.
"For the past few years," said Lynn Tanner, SkillsUSA advisor and MTC automotive technology instructor,"this toy drive has helped many children in Colquitt County to receive toys that otherwise would not receive any."
Donations go to benefit the Colquitt County Christmas Cheer Toy Shop and to supply the pediatric ward at Colquitt Regional Medical Center.
"[We want] to help brighten a child's stay while they are sick or injured," Tanner said.
The college encourages members of the community to bring new toys to the Moultrie Tech campuses on either Veterans Parkway or Industrial Drive. Monetary donations are also accepted by contacting Tanner at 217-4154.
